Another tango travesty in the media...

Why, oh why, does tango always seem to get the most twisted press in the national/world media? Why do the producers and their bosses seem to cater to the kitsch and the ratings and not the reality? When was the last time any of us saw national media coverage of Argentine Tango in its purest form - a social milonga? It could be in Buenos Aires, it could be a milonga in New York City, or L.A. or Portland or wherever.

Anything, but not this. Horrific is the only word I can think of.

By the way, thanks to Cherie for the first post on the subject - back on June 11.
